Victoria, BC: Local activist, newspaper publisher, and celebrated anti-prohibitionist Ted Smith is ready to release the long-awaited Hempology 101: The History and Uses of Cannabis Sativa. A book launch will be held at the Sacred Herb on Tues July 17 from noon to 2 pm, with a reading at high noon. It will be available in stores and on-line that day.
Ted has written the book to accompany his weekly lecture series at the University of Victoria. It offers a comprehensive and holistic view of humanity’s relationship with cannabis through history into the present day. It will also be of interest to anyone who would like to know more about the solutions that this plant offers to many of the environmental and economic problems faced by the world today, from supplying renewable food, fuel, textiles, and building materials, to providing inexpensive and easily accessible medicine.
Ted has been making the news regularly since he began his career of activism when he moved to Victoria to start Hempology 101 in 1995. In 1996 he founded the Cannabis Buyer’s Club of Canada and has provided cannabis products to people with permanent, physical disabilities since. As president of the International Hempology 101 Society, Ted is also the publisher of the Cannabis Digest newspaper. Hempology 101 represents the culmination of this work to date, explaining in great detail the many reasons he feels so passionately that this plant deserves to be embraced by modern society.
The book will be available to purchase from www.hempology101store.ca, or likewise straight off the shelf at Sacred Herb and other stores in Canada for $24.95. Ted will also be touring Canada this year, with book signings scheduled in Ontario from July 21 to 29 and Alberta from Aug 17-26.
